Exquisite Ghost - Earthen Soundwares (2012) (electronic)

Here's another one from a friend. Winnipeg-based electronica producer Jordan Thomas (moniker: Exquisite Ghost) has been pounding out this stuff for a while now. Signed to netlabel Salient Sounds, Jordan takes equal influence from prog acts like Mahavishnu Orchestra, the classic jazz of Miles Davis and the cosmic swagger of hip-hop producers Flying Lotus, J-Dilla and El-P.

There's a lot of really cool sounds on display here; Ghost seems to have an endless array of downbeat numbers and bangers. With precise drum programming, a wide variety of synths and samples and heavy ambient texturing, this album just goes by at a really smooth and otherwordly pace. Seriously, give this one a spin.
